GEOGRAPHY Analyze the document and answer the short-answer questions that follow the document. During Mao Zedong's rule in China, people studied his sayings for guidance on how to live and work. Some were quoted as proverbs. Here are a few of the many sayings that were reproduced and quoted. We must see to it that all our cadres [government workers] and all our people constantly bear in mind that ours is a big socialist country but an economically backward and poor one, and that this is a very great contradiction. To make China rich and strong needs several decades of intense effort, which will include, among other things, the effort to practise strict economy and combat waste, i.e., the policy of building up our country through diligence and frugality. The wealth of society is created by the workers, peasants and working intellectuals. If they take their destiny into their own hands, follow a Marxist-Leninist line and take an active attitude in solving problems instead of evading them, there will be no difficulty in the world which they cannot overcome. What is work? Work is struggle. There are difficulties and problems in those places for us to overcome and solve. We go there to work and struggle to overcome these difficulties. A good comrade is one who is more eager to go where the difficulties are greater. -Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-tung [Mao Zedong]. What does Mao say to encourage his people to work for China's development?
